I had my medical evaluation yesterday and the deterioration is slow. I have lost strength in my legs but all other body functions are normal and my upper body is strong and above average. It is advised that I do not drive anymore and I am working on getting a special van with hand controls and an electric wheel chairhttp://kahovka-service.ru
June 12 will be 6 months since the diagnosis and it looks as though I will make it past that milestone. My next evaluation is in 3 months and the goal is to maintain weight (can you say Haagen Das ice cream ?)
I have no idea on what to do to slow down the deterioration but I am doing acupuncture for energy and centering of my chi as well as chiropractic and massage therapy for general well being.
I will be entering clinical trails starting in July unfortunately there is a 50% chance that I will be taking a placebo instead of the real thing. There is no way of getting around that issue.
I am currently partnering with the ALS Association in the fight against Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Although I am limited it my ability to move around, it is not stopping me from planning on my next adventure to Central America and countries # 82-83-84-& 85.
